This is fitting, considering the school is going broke.

Sanders to hold rally Thursday at Chicago State University

rmont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the tenacious rival to Hillary Clinton, brings his Democratic presidential campaign to Chicago on Thursday, appearing for a televised event at the University of Chicago before holding a rally at Chicago State University.

The collegiate settings underscore one key to Sanders’ populist base — younger voters who welcome his call for free college tuition and his criticism of income inequity.

The events come less than three weeks before Illinois’ March 15 primary election in which he faces the former secretary of state, who was born in Chicago and grew up in Park Ridge. In part, Sanders’ visit is aimed at showcasing a long-haul national strategy for his campaign.

On Saturday, Sanders and Clinton face off in the South Carolina primary. Clinton has held double-digit leads over Sanders in polling there, largely because of support from African-American voters who make up about half of that state’s Democratic turnout.

Though Sanders insisted Wednesday he had not given up on the Palmetto State, his schedule for the week showed him traveling to a variety of other states, including several March 1 “Super Tuesday” states, when a dozen primaries and caucuses are being

held with 880 nominating convention delegates at stake.

In holding the rally at Chicago State, Sanders will be making his appeal at a school with a majority African-American student population, including many nontraditional older students, as he tries to cut into Clinton’s advantage among black voters.
